Application for the role of Radiography Assistant
I have recently seen your advert in (where) and (when) for the role of Radiography Assistant and I would like to apply for this role.
I have always been keen in science and was very good at science in school. From the research and some work experience I have done I would be very keen to start a career in Radiography and feel that I would make a good assistant providing support to a radiographer. I am very keen to learn and feel that I could learn quickly.
I have done some previous work with customers in (what kind of role if true) and I feel that I would be good at booking patients in and getting them into their correct clothing for an x-ray, providing reassurance to those people who are worried and providing them with any information that they need.
I understand that some patients will already be internal at the hospital and some will be outpatients and that I would have to arrange for patients to be collected and taken back to their wards etc. I feel that I have an organised and thorough nature and would be able to handle this well.
I have enclosed my CV which shows my skills and experience in detail. If you are interested in my skills please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with writing your application letter.
